Hibernoma: An Uncommon Soft Tissue Tumor - A Detailed Case Study and Literature Review

Abdullah S. Al-Darwish | Mohannad K. Saffaf | Sami Al Hawassi


Abstract: Hibernoma is a rare, benign tumor arising from brown adipose tissue. Although hibernomas are typically slow - growing, painless masses, they can mimic malignancy on imaging and thus should be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses. We present a case of a 37 - year - old male with a two - year history of a painless mass in the lower neck, which was initially suspected to be fibroadenoma based on Examination and CT findings. Surgical excision of the mass revealed a well - circumscribed mass composed of mature adipocytes, the final histopathology revealed the Diagnosis of Hibernoma. This case report highlights the importance of considering hibernoma in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses and provides a literature review of hibernoma.
